It imparts the fundamentals of the theory and also provides some sort of roadmap for further training, with the technical info contained in this book being mainly based on feedbacks that have been received from more than three hundred faculty members at various workshops. This publication includes so many interesting chapters that have been sequenced in the order allowing to maintain students' interest throughout the entire course. The students will study the structure and applications of the switch-mode PES (power electronic systems), get the info on the converters and feedback controllers, understand the practical details of implementing a power-pole, get detailed description of the diode rectifiers, magnetic concepts, PFC (power-factor-correction) circuits, controller design, various electric motor drives, thyristors, uninterruptible power supplies, utility applications of the power electronics, etc. The arrangement of the material also allows the instructors to omit some of the topics in order to concentrate on another...
